Why is B.A.P’s Jongup being called the “YMCA bully”?

A childhood photo of B.A.P.‘s Jongup has surfaced online. What’s causing talk is how adorable and rebellious the young Jongup looks.

Shared during a interview, Jongup’s photo from his younger days has netizens jokingly calling him the “YMCA bully”. Because of the YMCA track suit he’s wearing and the bag that’s carelessly slung over his neck, the nickname does seem to come across as fitting. Although he was only five-years-old at the time, the aura he’s giving off would make anyone think twice about crossing him on the streets.

In the interview, Jongup discussed that advancing into elementary school was the hardest time in his life, revealing, “I remember throwing a tantrum because I didn’t want to go to elementary school, but eventually being pulled there by my mom. I don’t know why I hated it so much then, but I decided to give it a go after being bribed with a character backpack my mom bought me.”

Fans commented, “I’ll buy you a character backpack so please come get married to me,” “Your eyes were so big when you were little,” “You had an intimidating aura as a child,” and “Jongup oppa has such an innocent take on life.”

Bully must have different connotations in Korea because it's not something you'd call someone endearingly.

it might be a bad choice of words by the translator, that happens sometimes.

they call him "YMCA 일진" and in this context, 일진 or iljin is slang for boss.

it's generally used to refer to those little neighbourhood punks that go around bullying other kids, so yeah, bully.

Haha, he's so cute! The title is pretty misleading though; bully made me think that this was something serious at first... :P

LOOOLLLL sry bb just blame akp!!!
steelsigns 24th-May-2012 06:06 pm (UTC)
No worries ;) I was just so afraid it was going to be a case of netizens-going-shit-crazy (when are they ever not, really) and BAP's career being forced into oblivion.
swhyeon1991 24th-May-2012 06:54 pm (UTC)
well but Jongup already got shit on omona because of having chris brown as his role model tho so *shrugs* *fixes bangs*

Well trudat, but I was thinking more like a BlockB-in-Thailand or CoEd-Boy-and-Rape sort of drama
swhyeon1991 25th-May-2012 11:37 am (UTC)
well if we I really think about it, actually this Jongup case is even not that blameworthy. Block B uh yes they were wrong, and they apologized. Co-Ed's Kangho well he's maybe really a bully and about being a rapist we'll never know, only him and the victim who know the truth.
While Jongup, i think, idolizes CB musically etc and i HIGHLY doubt, like, HIGHLY he has a mindset of hitting his girlfriend, being a douchebag etc. and i really think it's a matter of translation too. ugh i'm pulling a JONGUPDIDNTMEANIT!!!!!11!1 so hard rn lmao and i don't care :c

sry bb :c
steelsigns 25th-May-2012 05:15 pm (UTC)
Ahaha bb I think you seem to be on edge. I wasn't even implying anything! What I meant was that when I saw the title, I thought he really did have a rumoured bully past and netizens might turn it into a case like Kangho's, (since that's the most similar context for bully) and it turns out the word was used in a totally different context. -.- And don't worry, in the case of Jong Up idolizing Chris Brown, I'm not one of those people who need convincing :)
swhyeon1991 25th-May-2012 05:40 pm (UTC)
LOLOMG see!! my damn deep butthurtness even hinders me from digesting your comment well god i'm so embarrassed rn lol. sry bb i sometimes just can't stand omona's judgmental high horses so :cc

/runs to the corner sobbing
